I have made this for my dgd. The purse folds down to become a doll cradle. I didn't want to knit the doll and managed to find this cute little one to fit into the sleeping bag. I may try to make some doll clothes to go with it.

that is just adorable and what a great idea for a little girl. Did you make your own pattern or is there one out there somewhere? And the pinks are just perfect!!

I based it on a pattern I found here (scroll down)

I made it bigger to hold the purchased doll. Because I changed the number of stitches, I did stripes instead of the hearts. I used Red Heart Soft Touch yarn which was quite nice to work with

Thanks everyone for all your kind words.
Mom2hancj - it didn't take too long to knit as it really isn't very big. (I made it a little bigger than the pattern) The doll in it is only 6 inches. If I were to make another, I would make the lining smaller than the outer part and just increase number of stitches on the lining before joining the two pieces together.

What a cute idea. They can go places carrying a "big girl purse" then play dolly when they are bored with that! LOL Neat!

O my goodness this is just wonderful. I want to make a half dozen.I can't wait to start. As soon as I saw it, I got the pattern, jumping in with both feet, this is the first time I ever got a pattern from the internet that wasn't in the freebie sites.
I have several little DGD's with birthdays coming up. :)
Did it take you long?

Grannychickadee, it didn't take long as it is not very big. I did make mine a little bigger than the pattern but the doll in mine is only 6 inches tall.

Yours is so much cuter than the one you linked! :inlove:

I never would have looked twice at what they show, but I want to make one that looks like yours! :)

Thanks Sue!!! I just paid for and downloaded the pattern for this adorable doll cradle/purse!!!

Shucks, now I'm gonna have to start another project!

Where has my 2008 Resolution gone to? :shrug:

Oh, my 2008 Resolution was to have only ONE PROJECT on the needles at a time!

Ack! :hair: What am I going to do with myself? I can't kick my own hind end! I can reach! :eyes:

Technically, it's almost impossible to have more than one project on a set of needles, so I'd say you're within your limits! ;) ;) ;) :thumbsup:

IMHO, any grammie with granddaughters should knit this darling doll purse! It is too cute to resist!

And so quick, too, it looks like! And a great STASHBUSTER!!!!

How adorable. Years ago, my mil made my dd one of these crocheting it to the bottom of a softener bottle. I think I still have it tucked away. You did a great job and it is just beautiful!

Thanks everyone. I am now working on a set of clothes for the doll. She is only 6 inches, so it is a bit of a challenge.
